Orienter system

The free-standing Model NEROE rotary orienter accepts incoming containers directly from an existing customer pass-through conveyor by means of a feedscrew and infeed starwheel. The starwheel smoothly transfers the containers to platforms on the multistation orienting turret. Each container is transferred into its individual orienting station, which descends and captures the container at the neck finish to give the container full axial stability. With the container fully captured, sensors detect discriminating features for orientation. If the sensors detect that the container is correctly oriented, the container continues through the turret without further action. If the sensors determine the container to be incorrectly oriented, the lower mechanism rotates the container based on the number of side surfaces and required discharge orientation.
